Masayang ibinalita sa PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) ng Star Magic talent na si John James Uy na napili siyang maging videojock or VJ ng MYX International.

 

"I'm really very excited! It's going to be shown sa U.S., Europe, and other countries na may MYX, except lang sa Philippines, kasi nga may local MYX here. What's good in it is I'm going to tape or shoot everything here in the Philippines, so there will be no conflict with my other work here," pagbabalita ni John James nang makausap siya ng PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) sa launching ng Star Magic 2009 Catalogue.

 

Pang-international na pala ang talent ni John James. Nag-audition ba siya para rito?

 

"Actually, they interviewed me on cam. After the interview, they realized that they like the way I talk. Actually, I'm lucky because this is my first hosting job. I never hosted before."

 

Ano sa palagay niya ang nakita nila sa kanya para kunin siyang VJ?

 

"I think the ability to speak. And you have to know a lot about music, and I know a lot about music. They asked me to introduce a music video. And for my interview, they asked me to describe the music scene here in the Philippines. So, it's like sort of an audition already. I'm going to start this October. Sana it will be shown here. But it won't, it's only international."

 

Bukod sa pagiging VJ ng MYX International, abala rin si John James sa taping ng upcoming show ng ABS-CBN na Pieta, na pinagbibidahan ni Ryan Agoncillo.

 

"Isa ako sa mga kontrabida ni Ryan dito. Maganda kasi maraming action scenes. Action-drama siya. I'm very lucky to be included in this soap."

 

Member pa rin daw siya ng ASAP Coverboys, although hindi nga siya nakakalabas sa ASAP lately. Pero nakakasama naman daw siya sa mga guesting at out-of-town shows.

 

Kuntento ba siya sa career niya right now?

 

"Yeah, I mean it's better if you work hard and be patient. Slowly but surely, as they say."

 

Patuloy pa rin daw sa pag-aaral ng Tagalog si John James para na rin sa ginagawa niyang soap.
